Summary
  • Based on the author's viral New York Times op-ed, a heartfelt celebration of the tomboy phenomenon and its implications for girlhood explores its origins in a Victorian ideal and role in shaping history, science and culture
  • "In Tomboy, Davis explores the evolution of tomboyism from a Victorian ideal to a twenty-first century fashion statement, honoring the girls and women--and those who identify otherwise--who stomp all over archaic gender norms. She highlights the forces that have shifted what we think of as masculine and feminine, delving into everything from clothing to psychology, history to neuroscience, and the connection between tomboyism, gender identity, and sexuality. Above all else, Davis's comprehensive deep-dive inspires us to better appreciate those who defy traditional gender boundaries, and the incredible people they become." -- Amazon.com
